|WEEK IN CRAIG: THE GREAT MESH CAP DEBATE.|
|By Amy Blair||
This week, something truly magical happened on craigslist. God showed up, and the kids went ape shit, proving that when The Big Guy in the Sky's got something to say, people listen. At last check, the G-Man was yapping on about not coveting thy neighbor's goods. This week, however, it was all about the Eleventh Commandment: Thou Shalt Not Wear Trucker's Hats.
"T r u c k e r s' H a t s are totally fucking retarded
Dear Everyone Who Sucks,
Please stop wearing those trucker hats. They make you look ugly. Ugly as in fat-on-the-inside ugly. You look retarded. The whole white trash hipster thing needs to die, just like you. Please eat a dick and a bullet. The reason why you are not finding "love" is because you are wearing that lame hat, you hipster dickwad. Also mullets = bad. Billy Ray Cyrus cut his off. Even he realized that it wasn't cool.
And with that, the Missed Connections board was off and running.
The first to chime in were the posters taking a stand on God's side
"They look so fucking ridiculous on anyone including truckers. But, truckers have no fucking taste. Look at the way they dress. OK, I guess I can excuse them for having such ugly fucking hats. They don't know any better."
"Chicks look hot in trucker hats
That is all I wanted to say."
Rock on, brother.
"Mesh Trucker Sucker
Dressing like yer' from Jersey is going to replace this whole dressing 80's trend shit........."
Hey man, I hear ya. Fucking Jersey.
But it wasn't until this poster suggested that the Gap will soon be selling trucker hats, that the board REALLY went buck wild:
"Trucker hats at the GAP
We just shot a Gap commercial the other day with all five principal models wearing the mesh trucker hats...I guess they are picking up on the whole look for a late summer/early fall campaign...
So...If the Williamsburg hipster population is as predictable as I think, we will be hat free by Sept.
Everyone in Gap...keep on truckin'"
Khakis, stripey scarves, and now trucker hats. How can you not love the Gap? I mean, come on. Catchy advertisements with distilled pre-fab trendmeisters bopping around to disco beats. This is America, baby! Long live the Gap!
I'm just now tuning in...so can someone update me on the trucker hat conversation? also, where exactly is williamsburg?"
I don't know. Sorry. Just makes me laugh.
"Nevermind, Trucker's Hats are so fucking choice
OK So I had said that trucker hats are beyond gay and make everyone look like a fucktard.
Well now I realize the error of my ways. If the Gap has trucker's hats, then I like them. Nay, I love them. I'm going to buy a million of them to match all my khakis. I hope that J.Crew gets them in so I can buy them in different colors, such as persimmon, chantarelle, and lemongrass.
But since I am God, I'm going to start a new trend. I think wearing vaginas on our heads would be so fucking "deck".
P.S. To make this post more related to Missed Connections, I would like to mention that I had a MC on the uptown A,C,E this morning with everyone who doesn't suck."
As requested, I have taken off my trucker hat. I am wearing a vagina on my head.
P.S. -- Chicks in trucker hats are hot. Amen.
